— COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, Democrats run Chicago. Democrats say mayoral challenger Brandon Johnson says “Seniors, people with disabilities, CPS students should ride CTA free.” What about those who are minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, unmarried, liberal, moderate, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German American, those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, those who have less money than others, those who are in America illegally, criminals, boozers, gamblers, stoners, and others who Democrats paint as being “victims” of Republicans?

— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD: COMMENT: Democrats say “Why Illinois is having a hard time filling state government jobs.” The Democrats who ran GAO, IRS, and the Post Office in 1980, 1971, and 1966 respectively, hired me because I was qualified for the jobs and they could not find qualified Democrats, minorities, females, veterans, or younger people who would take the jobs. By January of 1980, I had a) passed the CPA examination on my first attempt, b) earned an MBA from Loyola, and c) worked for IRS for almost 9 years. By June of 1971, I had a) passed the Federal Service Entrance Examination, b) earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU, and c) worked for Firestone Stores for 10 months. By November of 1966, I had passed the Post Office employment examination, earned a high school diploma, and owned and safely driven a car for 2 years.
CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Biden tests 2024 themes — and himself at 80 — in a swing state.” Ever-increasingly, to get elected and to get reelected, Democrats use government to give more and more and more preference to those who are the following: minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, unmarried, liberal, moderate, those who have less money than others, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German American, those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, those who are in America illegally, criminals, boozers, gamblers, stoners, etc.

JOURNAL GAZETTE TIMES COURIER
— COMMENT: Rich Miller says “Election consulting fees interesting.” I should write a book about how Republican political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, etc. in Illinois have treated me and treated my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters since 2000. I have been a member of the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) since 2001. I served as an AAPC Midwest Chapter board member from 2001 until I was rudely dumped in 2004. I am one of the only seven AAPC members in Illinois and I am one of the only two members who work only for Republicans. GAO works for Congress. Much of what GAO does is consulting. I worked for GAO as an Analyst for almost 18 years 1980-1997, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $109,732-$142,650/year. Much of what CPAs and Certified Internal Auditors do is consulting. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 and I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. I became a licensed CPA in 1981.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: State records show that Dan Proft’s People Who Play by the Rules PAC spent almost $36 million during the second half of 2022, mostly on advertising boosting Sen. Darren Bailey’s gubernatorial bid and opposing Gov. J.B. Pritzker. Of that, $2.4 million was spent on consulting. Former ABC7 political reporter Charles Thomas was paid $100,000 in two $50,000 installments. Thomas appeared in some of Proft’s ads praising Bailey. Tyrone Muhammed, the controversial founder of Ex-Cons for Community and Social Change, which bills itself as a violence interruption group, was paid $250,000 for consulting work. Proft’s Starfish Consulting was also a recipient of almost $535K. But the highest paid consultant for Proft’s PAC during the last six months of 2022 was a Chicago company called Salvo Page LLC, which got $800,000, plus another $111K for website services. Salvo Page is not registered as a company with the state of Illinois. The only campaign payments to the company disclosed to the state were made by Proft’s People Who Play by the Rules PAC. Google searches turn up nothing. Proft did not respond to repeated requests for comment over several days. A search of Salvo Page’s Chicago address on the State Board of Election’s website turned up a clue. Salvo Page shares a Chicago street address with Pipeline Media. The Columbia Journalism Review’s Tow Center has done extensive reporting on Pipeline and similar companies. According to that reporting, the company is run by Brian Timpone, a longtime Proft associate. I wasn’t able to reach Timpone. Richard Uihlein, who was the principal funder of Bailey’s campaign via Proft’s PAC as well as some direct contributions, controls a committee called Restoration PAC, which paid Pipeline and an affiliate company well over a million dollars last year for various services, CJR’s Tow Center reported last October. And that brings us to Republican Illinois attorney general candidate Tom DeVore. When DeVore busted the campaign contribution caps in his race last August with a $250,000 personal loan to his campaign committee, some thought he might be opening the door to large contributions, perhaps from the billionaire Richard Uihlein. Instead, all DeVore really did was allow Democratic incumbent Kwame Raoul to take a million-dollar contribution from Gov. Pritzker’s campaign fund – $940,100 more than Pritzker could’ve contributed had the contribution caps been in place. A few labor organizations also contributed sums slightly above the previous cap limit of $59,900, but it wasn’t much. DeVore received a $10,000 contribution from James Hoeg in late October, which was $4,000 more than he would’ve been able to receive had it not been for the caps being lifted (Hoeg, by the way, recently contributed $50,000 to Paul Vallas’ Chicago mayoral campaign). DeVore also received a $50,000 contribution in late September from the Anthony Marano Company (which sells produce to Chicago-area restaurants). The contribution was $38,000 above the by-then-negated limit. And that’s it. $42K is all DeVore appears to have netted from his cap-busting loan. There’s often an expectation when candidates loan money to their campaigns that they’ll spend most of it. Instead, DeVore reimbursed himself almost all of that cash, including a $200,000 payment on October 14, even though the campaign was entering its final few weeks, and then another $15,000 the day after election day. DeVore reported $226,072 in contributions starting the day after he loaned himself that money, which was just about $11,000 more than what DeVore reimbursed himself. Outside of the loan repayment, DeVore reported spending less than $142,000 in the fourth quarter, which ended December 31. By contrast, AG Raoul reported spending almost $1.9 million in the same quarter. DeVore spent just $8,642.98 on advertising during the fourth quarter. Raoul reported spending almost $1.7 million. In other words, DeVore did not run a campaign designed to win. But we pretty much knew that during the campaign itself. He got thumped by Raoul. DeVore did manage to elevate and give voice to some folks on the far right. Shannon Adcock was a significant DeVore contributor, kicking in $2,500 during September. Adcock is one of the founders of Awake Illinois, a far-right group that opposed pandemic mandates in schools that has since morphed into firing up moral panic over gays and trans people in schools, libraries and coffee shops. Vallas spoke at one of her events. DeVore is now busily lining up clients to fund a third lawsuit against the state’s assault weapons ban at $200 a person. He raised more than half a million dollars with that same flat fee to fund his first two suits.)

Ever-increasingly, Democrats and RINOs discriminate against Whites. Soon, the more White that you are, Democrats and RINOs will stop you from getting an education, getting and keeping jobs, owning vehicles and real estate, etc. They will start with Whites who are heterosexual, conservative, Republican, male, older, gun-owners, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. It is called political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, replacement theory, and even worse things. I should write a book about the aforesaid.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The 2024 primary field could be even more crowded than it was four years earlier. There are several major Democratic officeholders thought to be waiting for the right moment to run for president. If Biden doesn’t run, that moment might arrive early for three governors: California’s Gavin Newsom, Illinois’s J.B. Pritzker, and Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer. The first two governors have vast resources at their disposal, while the third checks an awful lot of boxes for Democrats valuing electability above all else.)

HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL
— FROM THE ARTICLE: “Pick one thing to focus on for the rest of your life!” What did you focus on in the past and what are you focusing on now? When I was young, I focused on a) making myself a productive member of society and b) making the most of my potential. I earned college degrees (NIU, B.S., management, 1970; Loyola, MBA, 1976; DePaul, M.S., accounting; 1980; and IIT, M.S., financial markets and trading, 1997), professional certifications (CPA, 1979; Certified Internal Auditor, 1981; Certified Fraud Examiner, 1990; Certified Government Financial Manager, 1994; Certified Financial Services Auditor, 1996; and Forensic Accountant, 1997), and a professional license (CPA, 1981). But the aforesaid all came crashing down in 1997 when I was 49 years old and my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in making me take their early retirement “offer.” Starting in 2000, I have focused on helping elect Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct. I have been a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999 and the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. I served as the webmaster for the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) 2000-2004 and 2008-2010, a member of the Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee 2003-2007, the chairman of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois 2005-2012, and the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019. But ever-increasing, my efforts to help elect Republican on ballots in my precinct is crashing down. Ever-increasingly, Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and MTRO leaders and Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct treat me like they blame me and blame what I have done to help elect them for their defeats. Ever-increasing, Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct act like they do not want me to help elect them. Most commonly, they hint/imply/argue/shout that I am “too conservative.” Ever-increasingly, they hint/imply/argue/shout that I share too many demographics with Trump and that my demographics are bad: conservative, Republican, White, male, old (74), draft-avoider, gun-owner, heterosexual, married, childless, union member for almost 12 years, federal employee for almost 30 years, federal retiree for more than 27 years, someone who was forced into early retirement when they were 49 years old, someone who has filed lawsuits, Protestant, 100% German American, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, Crete resident 1948-1972, Wheaton resident since 1978, etc. If you were me, what would you do about the aforesaid?

I would focus on candidates who lost U.S. Senate, U.S. House, Illinois statewide, Illinois Senate, Illinois House, DuPage countywide, DuPage 4th District, Milton Township, Wheaton citywide, Wheaton West District, and judicial races. I would focus on their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers. I would focus on those candidates who I did the most to help elect since 2000, but who then have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me to punish me for their losses.)
